The teeth whitening procedure here at Contemporary General Dentistry is a simple, quick, and effective treatment. And unlike with many over-the-counter products that promise you a positive change, our Hartford teeth whitening not only delivers, but is 100% safe on your tooth enamel.
Bleaching is the chemical process that transforms stained and discolored teeth into brighter ones. We can do it at our office, or you can do it yourself with our take-home version. In both cases, the procedure is similar. Bleaching solution is applied to your teeth, either by our cosmetic dentist or supplied to our custom-made whitening trays that you wear at home. The solution breaks down the stains that have developed on your teeth due to a variety of possible causes, including tobacco, tea and coffee, red wine, cola, berries, soy sauce, curry, hard candy, and any number of other items that are known to cause a change to your tooth color. Some prescription drugs number tooth discoloration among their possible side-effects. One common example is tetracycline. Regardless of any of your personal habits or medications, though, your tooth enamel wears down slowly but steadily as you age. Underneath it is a duller looking tissue, which only further contributes to the need for our Hartford teeth whitening. Done at our office, the entire procedure takes an hour and a half or less. If you use our take-home whitening, it’s more gradual, with the results happening over the course of about two weeks. Neither is better than the other. It’s simply a matter of your comfort and preference. The effects of both will last for a year or maybe even longer depending on how you maintain your teeth afterward.
This is the perfect time to contact us and arrange a visit to get started with our Hartford teeth whitening. Don’t settle for a smile that you’re less than fully proud to show off.
